As the tech guy for our family of 12 macOS and iOS connected devices, I’m the one charged with managing all the storage, backup, and maintenance details. What a PITA.
Many of us have complicated feelings about death and dead bodies. Personally, I wouldn’t want to do this but I understand why some would.
I’m a “beginner cook” so I love little tips and tricks of cooking and baking. I’ve seen these “food hacks” all over Facebook and Twitter and many of them seemed suspect to me.
Bad news for Apple but not completely unexpected. The company will undoubtedly bounce back.
Krause’s software was simultaneously the most interesting and the most frustrating user interface I’ve ever experienced.
This whole “to recline or not to recline” issue has popped up again. For the record, as a guy who is 6’3″ tall with bad knees, you not only can’t recline your seat in front of me (the seat ends up slamming into my knees), I won’t let you, going so far as to physically prevent your seat from moving back. But, keep in mind, instead of blaming each other, we should get angry at the airlines who jam us into coach with seats so tiny even the average-sized person can’t fit in some of them.
Good explainer of leap years.
Trying to make a bad situation a little bit better.
This case is an excellent example of the fact that, while Apple appears customer friendly, they have some very employee unfriendly policies.
There are some great songs on this list. Glad my favourite artist made number one.
This was a lot funnier than you would have expected it to be.
OMG! That headline! Run! HIDE! SAVE YOURSELVES! Except… This article spread like….well…a virus over the past couple of days, prompting much glee and snickering from certain groups of computer users. And it’s an example of something I rail about on … Continued
My wife and I are big fans of Costco. Even though it’s a two hour one way trip (including a ferry ride) away, we look forward to shopping there. As a matter of fact, we’ve got a big “Costco shop” planned for tomorrow. We’ll make a day of it in the Big City. While she gets her hair done, I’ll shop for new stuff for our recently adopted puppy and then we’ll go to Costco and have sushi afterward. Sounds like a perfect Valentine’s Day.
Do not watch this without a supply of tissues at the ready.
The Japanese dedication to this principle is remarkable.
The fact that Voyager 1 and 2 are still operational is amazing. When the news came that Voyager 2 had gone dark, I thought its mission was over. But NASA engineers “kept working the problem” and managed to fix it – from 11+ billion miles away.
That was one hell of a blast. I hope everyone in the area knew about it because that would scare the bejesus out of you if you were just out walking the dog.
This is a long but fascinating story about a woman some of you may have heard of and whose life and death and age are still in dispute.
My wife and I watched the first episode last night and this review is pretty much how we felt about it. I’m not saying it’s a bad show but we didn’t laugh once during the first episode. Laughter should be a given in a sitcom.
Hey Wacom – if you had thought about this to begin with, you wouldn’t be in this trouble now. Companies need to learn what “opt-in” means.
With the way Jobs took over and made wholesale changes as well as inserting NeXT employees into almost every facet of the company, I always say today is the day NeXT acquired Apple.
Apple was damned if they did and damned if they didn’t. The biggest error was in not being more open and forthcoming about this decision as it was happening. That being said, this fine is likely an intentional slap on the wrist.
There’s just so much dumb in this story. The school should have known better (you can’t just publicly show a movie without paying the rights holder) and Disney’s legal department handled it in the worst possible way. They could have simply said, “Don’t do it again.” but they ended up embarrassing their company and causing a lot of ill will and hurt feelings.
John Randall: “The identity plays upon the three aspects of the restaurant’s name by unifying the swan and the mallard through the positive and negative space within the ampersand. A limited colour palette and minimalistic style helps create a simple … Continued
Anyone involved with Apple’s “Authorized Service Provider” program will recognize some of the restrictions here. Apple is notorious for the stringency of its terms and the unequal restrictions placed on those who want to do business with the company.
I learned how to play chess when Bobby Fischer was World Champion (yes – I’m old) but I bet every one of these kids could still beat me.
Wacom will undoubtedly offer a heartfelt apology and explanation as to why they do this but the big question will be, for how long have they been doing this and what do they do with the data? The other part of this is I wish I had half the technical chops this guy does.
If you’re a car guy, this thread will waste the rest of your day.
This is good news for developers and users alike.
This is kind of mindblowing. I also didn’t realize not everyone could “hear the voices in their head.”
